I have been dying for burgers so I finally got myself to the store today for some shopping sans kid. I really love shopping during the day but hate shopping with a borrowed kid. Cooked up some arepas for my burgers and a pot of buffalo pepperjack mac & cheese. I scored a load of fresh fruits so I'll be following dinner with a bowl full of berries and fresh cream.

Haha! I'm jealous though. None of the stores here have been having roasts on sale, not decent sales anyway. :( Maybe I should come to your house for dinner.

What is your recipe for arepas?

I only make 1/2 or 1/4 even and just throw the whole cast iron pan right in the oven. I make them burger sized, so it makes either 4 or 2.

The plan was for fried chicken but I had forgotten to buy buttermilk. The milk from the dairy has been being rationed due to the tank being broken so I had to get regular buttermilk instead of making my own. <_< Anywho, with my plans ruined for tonight's dinner and my chicken safely in a baggie of milk until tomorrow I managed to score a pork loin on sale while I was out trying not to freeze to death. Ten more minutes.... a couple fried green beans and some reheated buffalo mac & cheese with some extra hot sauce and I should be toasty inside and out again in no time!

Last night men over-ruled the pork chops in favor of steak - go figure

Tonight I'm doing K's pork chops along with a new to us - very old cornbread recipe and cucumbers in herb sour cream sauce.

My husband is really the perfect dream husband. Last night he made us salmon cakes, red potatoes and his special corn (he adds milk and sugar). He used Kentucky kernal seasoned flour for the salmon cakes (gluten-free). He also uses that stuff for fried chicken. Then brownies topped with cherry ice cream and whipped cream. Am I lucky or what. Tonight is still a surprise but I'm sure will be amazing.

Colleen, that sounds fantastic. Gonna be tough to top brownies and cherry ice cream.

No idea what's for dinner here, I am halfway through finding places for all the Christmas stuff, and my dining table has vanished for now. I got some of the lounge back though. Hoping the brain fog doesn't strike :)

I have a pretty fantastic husband, but I need one of them cooking men. He sounds awesome! I actually have to cook my own food like a normal human being. :P I suppose between all of the other amazing stuff mine does for me though I can learn to live with cooking for myself. :lol:

I doubt the color matters.

I just looked at some Mexican brand corn meal I have. I just noticed it said " instant cornmeal". The only ingredients are corn and lime, slim not sure what makes it " instant". I made hot water corn bread ( basically cornmeal & hot water & fried) and it worked fine.

I've got a cooking husband -- thank goodness -- otherwise the family would have starved during certain periods of time -- I'm grateful for him and that I taught my kids to cook too -- although they are all very happy to let me take care of it for awhile ;)

Same here. Without him, we both would have starved. He carried the burden for a long time. He can do it, but I am the "better cook" he says.

(I am. That's da truth, :lol:)

I went to the gym again today, Ski. So far, so good. I cannot begin to express my sheer joy at being able to use my muscles again--the same ones that were once so weak, bordering on atrophy that I was unable to even dress myself. So much for the doubters (before DX) who said I would need a hoveround. <_< because of "fibromyalgia". It was from celiac, you idjits. I told them it wasn't that.... Fibro, my arse.

And until I can ride my bike, the pink and white bicycle streamers you sent me are dangling from my gym bag!!!xx

J cracks up every time he sees them.

Dinner tonight:

Bison meatloaf, sweet potatoes, sauteed chard.

So far the only brand of this that I have found is PAN. (While it does have a cc warning, the bakery I frequent uses it and tests it regularly and it has never tested positive for gluten.) It is not cornmeal treated with lime, which is an entirely different animal. Or corn as the case may be. Corn treated with lime is masa harina, precooked cornmeal is masarepa. I have found the PAN brand of masarepa in both yellow and white, and don't find that the flavor is particularly different with either although I have always had a preference for white corn which started as a little girl.

I used to think things like, that woman with bike streamers on her gym bag is eccentric. Or, that 35 year old woman wearing the giraffe hat is just weird. Now I wonder what someone went through to end up with the philosophy that life is too short for any of that nonsensical stuff, and that if it makes you happy, just do it, no matter how people look at you.

I'm not a gym kinda person, but I'm lugging my fat arse back onto my elliptical again. Yay? That folate supplement is making a real difference already in my energy and pain levels and it hasn't been quite a week yet.

Tonight is my first ever homemade fried chicken. I can't wait! No soy, no Crisco? No problem! I have an entire tub of lard in the pantry. :ph34r:

Oh, and I should point out that my husband is an awesome kitchen helper. I think it is probably better that way than him actually cooking. I like the spare set of hands, and I like being able to heap vegetables on his plate when he isn't looking.

What. She. Said. (yeah, I do not give a flying fig what anyone thinks of my "eccentricities" anymore. One of the perks of getting older. :lol: )

And "good on you" as my friend says.... for getting back on the machine. ;) yep, that folate deficiency was a real energy zap on me. Glad you are feeling better!

That makes two excited people, the other one being my husband who has been complaining that we paid for this thing and I'm not even using it. I should be excited, and I am excited about my ability, but the whole getting used to it again and sore muscles is not high up on my list of exciting things. :lol: Hopefully IH is faring better at the gym.

OMG Burgers on Buns made with Pamela's Bread Mix - I buy OMG burgers premade at my favorite market in Santa Rosa -- maybe I already told this story -- pardon the frog -- anyway if I haven't they are made with grass fed beef, cheese, bacon and bbq sauce all premixed into the patty. Haven't bought them on the past two trips because I cannot eat them -- Son kindly reminded me last weekend to purchase them. They'll be having them with avocado, extra cheese and bacon along with sweet potato fries

I'll have zu-noodles, chicken and the fries :D

    • 9 year Old going through testing
      another possible symptom of celiac disease.
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      Tell me if I'm going overboard- but I feel like she could be getting glutened from trace sources on surfaces. I'm a crazy person over it, like extreme germaphobe only it is gluten not germs. She's supposed to wash her hands and wipe the table before she eats. Being nine she's not always going to do that if I'm not there reminding her. Just an an example, we were at a birthday party recently. The kids ate pizza (my daughter ate her prepackaged gluten free pizza I brought). With their hands greasy from pizza they played a bounce a balloon game, where they all had to keep one balloon from hitting the floor, then sat down to cake. I sat in shock then made my daughter go wash her hands again before eating cake. Major crazy mom, but not really right? 
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Is Tissue Transglutaminase IgG one of the tests that can be done (I am guessing that is what TTG IGG stands for). Please correct me if I am wrong.
      Thank you.
    • Weird Reaction
      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
